Supreme Court: Plaintiffs May Not Voluntarily Dismiss Case to Appeal Class Certification Decision

Jackson Lewis P.C. • June 13, 2017
Plaintiffs may not voluntarily dismiss their class action claims upon receiving an adverse class certification decision and subsequently invoke 28 U.S.C. § 1291, the general rule that appeals can be taken only from a final judgment, to appeal the decision as a matter of right, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled. Microsoft Corporation v. Baker, No. 15-457 (June 12, 2017).

Supreme Court Hears Argument on Appellate Jurisdiction after Denial of Class Certification

Jackson Lewis P.C. • March 29, 2017

Baker, No. 15-457. If this controversial procedural mechanism is allowed, a named plaintiff would be able to simply agree voluntarily to dismiss his or her claims with prejudice, then appeal the unfavorable judgment against class certification.
